Reportedly Bengaluru generates about 4,200 metric tonnes of garbage every day and the city’s civic body the BBMP, is grappling with the problem of excess waste piling up in landfills. Apparently Time and again, the BBMP has failed to perform one duty to ensure that the waste collected from residential areas is segregated into wet and dry waste.

Meanwhile, since there is no viable way to ensure that recalcitrant residents segregate the waste, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) is proposing the idea of compulsory composting of wet waste in all homes. Furthermore, the KSPCB in its proposal to the Urban Development department has stated that by bringing in amendments to the Karnataka Municipal Act, the BBMP will be able to ensure that each household in the city composts its own wet waste. Apparently, KSPCB has proposed that households compost the wet waste individually or have localized collection points where the wet waste can be turned into compost and then sold for agricultural purposes.


Moreover, KSPCB has suggested that the civic body issue occupancy certificates to new residents, only if they have the provision for on-site composting. Further the proposal, however, is pending approval. “After the election code of conduct is lifted, the decision will be made".
